I really loved this shot.As I was climbing up with the girls I found the leaf like this. Pretty awesome!
Today is Halloween
Zush is in her traditional jesters collar, and to put devil ears on Kasia was wrong in so many ways, although she is a devil most of the time in public.
We hope your Halloween is fun and safe! Please keep candy from the pups,as they don’t know it’s bad for them!
Subaru is currently getting folks to enter and vote for pets in the Subaru Pet hall of Fame.
I entered the Zusher.
The link to vote is at the top of this page and if you should see it on Facebook, the picture above is the one I entered for the Zush.
Please vote for my girl, and if you could share this post,Zusher and I would truly appreciate it. If you are going into the site and can’t recognize her, search for ” Zush” and you will get her entry and the little blip I wrote to submit for her.You can vote daily through the end of November and, again, thanks!
So now, I have gone forward with into the next phase of the NJ tango-the dangerous dance of faxing forms…
Uh, I mentioned on Monday I was in an actual state of New Jersey office? It would have been cost efficient to have told me to bring this with me and you would have had it already? Seriously? What an efficiency expert could do on a field day with this!
To boot, we have company for dinner tonite so we need this road trip right now like a stick in an eye.
So I thought it was a normal Wednesday, so I go myself together and got the girls out and then, a study I am participating in Dementia/Alzheimer’s calls. So forget the long walk with the girls, as their study call required me to get home to a quiet spot.
Then I decided that I would try to take the gals out again and what do you think? The phone rings and my next tango with the State of New Jersey was on the line, looking to go twenty rounds with me. Some fun,eh?
Tomorrow we are having friends over for dinner so the girls and I are going to do our stepping in the drizzle in order to catch up a wee bit.
“For all those who go down to sea in ships.”…
This time of the year, when I put the girls out with me for a walk, I usually listen to a book on tape: this time of the year? No brained-“The Perfect Storm.”
Hurricane Patricia, which just hit Mexico as a catagory 5, had 880mb – I think hurricane Grace, back in 1991,was close to it, but not quite.
Anyhow, down here in “Amity”,as I like to call it, there are men and women here who do this for a living.As you get to know them and talk to them, you hear their stories and some of them are quite scary .
Listening to Sebastian Junger’s work makes you feel the angst of the waiting families, the consternation of town members who know the reputation of the boat’s owner,and the prayers and dread of those stuck at sea.
It has given given me a genuine appreciation of all they do, so this week, as I do every year, I will be remembering the crew of the Andrea Gail.
We all are up early this morning, courtesy of the state of New Jersey.
It seems that in my spare time, I need to travel 45 miles from our house to a state government office and verify the fact that I am citizen of the state of New Jersey.
Never mind that I am registered and have actually voted here, worked not one but two positions here, lay my head on my pillow in my home in the Garden State…they need proof.
Well, there in my black bag is my entire life in the state of New Jersey. Past history in this state has proven you can give them the world in documents but they’ll always ask for one more. This bag has everything but the kitchen sink. So for this morning, I’ll be Don(na) Quixote, tilting my lance at governmental windmills
